What do you desire most in life? In order to transform realities, we need to tap into our inner knowing and shift our focus onto the spiritual realm. Is it happiness, peace of mind, freedom from feeling stuck, burdened by anxiety or bored for long periods of time? Take action in the moment and you will start to transform realities from the inside out!
Create the future you desire by deciding what actions are necessary right now. You may inherently know you need to exercise more, eat better, give yourself more downtime, call an old friend, reduce clutter or improve your work situation. Take one step today and follow what feels best, leading to more balanced wellness and the future you desire!
At a pure level, giving does not exist alone as it is a part of the great web of life. Our giving comes from what we already have received in life. Therefore we are channels of this sacred energy. Recipients share their your unique selves and gifts within.
Ask yourself “What would ease challenges in our world at this time? How can I make a difference?” Spend some time meditating on this and see what arises within you. It may be visiting someone who feels alone or spreading more love on the planet through warm smiles and gentle kindness offered to every human who crosses your path today. Once your heart has fully opened, giving generously comes naturally as you have set yourself on the ultimate path of meaning and purpose. Every human holds a deep desire within to know this! Congratulations for walking this path of the open heart!
Receiving can be difficult for some, especially those who may feel they don’t deserve it. Receiving opens the heart and humbles us, surprising us immensely in the moment. Think about elders at end of life who become greatly appreciative of all the help they received.
Ask yourself “What would ease another persons’ suffering?” Consider what talents and gifts you have that could make a big difference in their lives, enhancing quality of life in those precious moments. These experiences create memories that may always remain ingrained in hearts … forever and ever!

A sacred union emerges whenever giving and receiving bonds relationships. The depths of our being where our open heart resides will naturally come forth and it becomes apparent the level of joy that is present within. Ponder what you would enjoy giving. Ask yourself “What brings me deep satisfaction and fulfillment?” Think about your passions, what you love to engage in, your gifted talents and inherent strengths. Remember whatever you give, you will also receive! The image below reflects this with the beautiful colours and design in the butterfly mirrored by the beautiful colouring and patterns of flower where nectar and sweetness of life is openly shared!
Giving and receiving are crucial when it comes to living with an open heart. To understand this clearly, think about a tree and how it continually receives support from the sun, rain, and earth while it openly gives support to birds, insects, fungi, ferns and moss in its surroundings. Giving and receiving are parts of the whole. Giving comes naturally from within.
Ask yourself “What do I have to give?” Think about your passions, talents, gifts, and skills you have developed. Perhaps you would love to teach children, volunteer at an animal shelter, take dogs for a walk, reduce waste on our planet or create a beautiful garden in your neighbourhood! Follow your open heart and what excites you!
The path of an open heart focuses on giving and receiving within and with all. When you free yourself from suffering, your life energy naturally elevates. Create a flow within and between yourself and others. Consider your strengths and inherent gifts. Ask yourself “How can I help?” See what arises in your mind. It may involve the earth, wild animals, family, friends, neighbours and community. Whatever it is, follow your heart and spark within! Your light will shine both within yourself and the world at large!
True dialogue is essential for strong and healthy relationships. Having an open heart supports loving-kindness and unconditional acceptance. As a result, feeling a deeper connection with others naturally arises. Notice when you feel easy, relaxed and naturally flowing. This is one of the most precious gifts you can give yourself and others! Congratulations!
When engaged in face to face conversations, it is important that you maintain eye contact and do not look away. Allowing distractions lowers the level of connection and as a result, you may disconnect entirely not hearing what the other person is saying at all. A sense of restlessness have have emerged, so at times like this it is important to take a deep breath and bring yourself back fully to the present moment with other.
As mentioned in previous posts, true dialogue begins with an open heart. Patience and unconditional acceptance without interjections is crucial for strengthening bonds. Notice when you interrupt the other person while they are speaking and take the conversation back to yourself. This act impedes the natural flow of conversational unfolding. True dialogue flows beautifully like water, at least until it hits a dam! Oh darn it!
Broaden conversations by allowing differences with others. Let go of dualistic thinking and any judgements you may hold with the concept of good/bad, right/wrong, better/worse and shift to a place of neutral acceptance. There is no need to alter other peoples’ perspectives, teach them or fix them. You do not need to give advice either unless they ask for it. Simply remain open and loving with an accepting heart.
